Bot eggs are eggs from bot flies, which look like a small bee. Bot eggs are bright yellow, the bot flies lays them on the horse's coat, particularly the long hairs on the legs, but sometimes other places as well.

They're unsightly, and they need to be removed before they hatch, because the larval stage is an intestinal parasite.

A bot knife is a tool for removing them.
